Children and their families residing in Riverside County are invited to enjoy one of two Winter Wonderland Holiday Gift Giveaways this year. The Riverside County Office of Education offers these events each year as a way for our students to have something to look forward to during the winter season.
“This event represents an opportunity to wrap our community’s collective arms around students who are deserving of positive reinforcement, loving kindness, and a fresh reminder of the importance of hope for the future.” Riverside County Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Edwin Gomez.
New this year, we are offering the Inaugural Winter Wonderland in the Desert hosted at the Palm Springs Convention Center on December 2, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We are excited to offer a meal, crafts, hot chocolate stations, a dessert bar, and more.
